The Shoes! Not attached yet, but the idea is there. How do you attach that front shield thingy to the rest of the boot?

Pieces are attached to the shoes. I haven't painted them because I want to seal them, and before I seal them I want them to be in the right shape.

....K, the video isn't working. I'll just upload pictures. Hang on a sec...

Ok, there we go. As you can see (obviously missing one piece, but that's ok, it's just right here on the table:

)
my range of movement is unhindered. I did have to remove and reattach the back part at one point, but it's looking good for now!

Ok, here's a list of things I need to get done for my suit to be complete:

1: Finish the shin guards
Construction, sealing, painting.
2: figure out how to get the belt so I'm confident in sitting down with it.
3: finish the helmet restoration.
Bondo to fill, sand, affix bottom foam "gasket"
4: paint everything
Italian Sage green, black secondary.
5: detail paint everything
Tiny highlights, silver, etc... also place decals and stickers where necessary.
6: LED the appropriate places in legs, chest, and helmet. Install fans in helmet.
7: strap shins to thighs, thighs to belt, belt to suspenders. Also get some suspenders. Strap biceps to chest.
8: construct the undersuit.
9: Check for fit, test outside (rougher wear than indoors) and, I dunno, maybe go through a drive through with it? We'll see.
10: DONE

I have finally reached the point where I can post a picture like this:

I'm stoked.

I'm also a little frustrated, a lot of these pieces don't look professional, which is what I'm going for. But I guess I can always rebuild the parts I don't like, so that's alright, then. Anyway, I'm excited. Next step, the totally forgotten knees! Haha
